THE bi­en­nial NT Recre­ational Fish­ing Awards were held on Novem­ber 24, cel­e­brat­ing the im­por­tant Ter­ri­tory in­dus­try’s best and bright­est.

The awards hon­our in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions who have made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the re­gion’s recre­ational fish­ing.

The win­ners fea­tured Alex Julius, Char­lotte Klose, Cobourg Fish­ing Sa­faris, SWB Barra Chal­lenge and Barra Team.

Pri­mary In­dus­tries Min­is­ter Ken Vowles said it was “im­por­tant to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the con­tri­bu­tions of the peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions help­ing to de­velop and man­age recre­ational fish­ing in the Ter­ri­tory”.

“It is with their stew­ard­ship that we will be able to max­imise the ben­e­fits of our amaz­ing fish­ing re­sources,” Mr Vowles said.

In a fur­ther boost for the in­dus­try, this year’s Na­tional Recre­ational Fish­ing Con­fer­ence took place in Dar­win.

“Themes this year in­clude sus­tain­abil­ity and man­age­ment of recre­ational fish­ing, and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment,” Mr Vowles said.

“These val­ues are at the heart of our pri­or­i­ties, and an up­dated recre­ational fish­ing sur­vey will help us bet­ter in­form the de­ci­sion­mak­ing process around them.”
